Hollywood hypocrites (yawn, I know)

Via the Hollywood Reporter: "According to a new study, seven television shows about serial killers were added, an increase of more than 35 percent."

The article notes how Hollywood and the media love to take credit for changing views on homoexuality due their positive portrayals of gays; however, when it comes to violence (y'know, like in seven new shows about killers), it's "Who, me?"

But of course.

Yeah, I tried watching "The Following" and gave up after three episodes. It was way too damn gory for my tastes. I find it funny how they never stop to consider that violence in movies can and does influence people to do violence things. Not everyone, but some people.

All these serial killer shows... they must be cheap to make. That's why you'll never see a decent live-action superhero show. That would be too expensive for them.
